How Kate Beckinsale became the most eligible BACHELORETTE in Hollywood: Here's her stellar dating history
Stunning actress Kate Beckinsale was recently spotted getting super cozy with newly-single actor Jason Momoa at the Vanity Fair Oscars afterparty. Beckinsale, who showed off her impressive figure in a see-through dress, was photographed smiling at Momoa during a 'flirty' conversation, which they reportedly did throughout the night.
They were also snapped standing unusually close to each other while gazing deeply into each other’s eyes. The ‘Aquaman’ star eventually gave his jacket to Beckinsale to keep her warm sparking rumours the two are dating. “They were standing at a bar chatting. They both had smiles on their faces and were very much into their conversation,” an insider exclusively told E! News. “They looked really happy.”
Momoa also denied rumours that he had reunited with Lisa Bonet just months after the two announced their split on social media in January.
"We're not back together, we're family ... we have two beautiful children together," Momoa told 'Access Hollywood' on the Oscars red carpet when asked if the two were giving their marriage another try. "We're not getting back together, we're family forever."
Kate Beckinsale's high-profile relationships
Beckinsale has been in numerous relationships over the years. In an interview with Jenn Lahmers on ‘Extra’, she even said: “Do you know I've never really been on a date? I literally meet someone, get to know them at work, and then either marry them or get pregnant by them. I just can't think of anything I'd hate more than sitting in front of somebody I don't know, that, chances are, I won't like, and have to sit and watch them eat food.”
As the rumors of Momoa and the ‘Underworld: Blood Wars’ star’s closeness are doing the rounds, let’s take a look at her past relationships.
Beckinsale and Michael Sheen were together from 1995 to 2003, and also had a daughter together, named Lily Sheen. Though the two are not together, they co-parent their child together in a friendly way. Sheen has reflected on his split with Beckinsale, saying he ‘questioned things’ about himself amid their 2003 breakup as he travelled between the US and UK. He said of breakups: "It’s always messy and always complicated… Ultimately, there is no real blame, life is just hard."
In an interview with ‘Live with Kelly and Ryan’, the actress revealed that she was not able to see her daughter because of the pandemic. She said, “I haven't seen my daughter for two years because of everything. Also, I went to Canada working and she couldn't come see me.”
After Sheen, Len Wiseman came into Beckinsale's life. They met on the set of ‘Underworld’ in 2003 and exchanged vows in 2004. But in 2015, they called it quits as an insider said at the time, “They have both had complicated schedules and have grown apart.” Before Beckinsale, Wiseman was married to a school teacher named Dana.
After ending her marriage with the director and producer, Beckinsale reportedly had an affair with Matt Rife, who was 21 at the time. They were reportedly seen together at Sherman Oaks Galleria in Los Angeles. But their together ended soon as a source said at the time, “[They] were supposed to be fun and light, but then he was talking about moving in [after] only a couple weeks. When they're together, it's fine. But she's busy working and has a family. It's been on and off.”
Beckinsale and Jack Whitehall were reportedly together for around seven months. They were also seen involved in PDA at a Karaoke bar in Los Angeles in 2018 but why their romance did not bloom much is not known. An onlooker, who spotted them at a karaoke bar, had said: "No one would expect someone like Jack to bag one of Hollywood’s hottest actresses. You couldn't get a more unlikely romance. They were like a pair of loved-up teenagers and weren’t trying to hide their feelings. They were practically sitting on top of each other in the booth of the nightclub and were laughing with each other. Kate rested her hand on Jack’s shoulder and she kept laughing and smiling at his jokes."
The onlooker also added at the time: "As the night progressed, he seemed to be growing in confidence and put his arm around her and gave her a hug. Then he decided to put his hand around the back of Kate’s neck and pulled her across him, where they started to passionately kiss. Kate then half-laid across him as they whispered to each other. Then they decided to make a quick exit.”

Beckinsale and Pete Davidson’s reported romance raised many eyebrows because of their age difference. The pair was first seen together at an after-bash of Golden Globes in January 2019. On ‘Saturday Night Live’, the comedian also addressed their 21-year age gap as he said: “Apparently people have a crazy fascination with our age difference. But it doesn't really bother us." But a few months later, they parted ways.
After Davidson, Beckinsale reportedly dated Goody Grace. They were spotted together in January 2020. Also, on the birthday of the ‘Pearl Harbor’ star, Grace apparently wrote, “HAPPY BIRTHDAY I LOVE YOU,” to which she replied: “@goodygrace I love you.” When Beckinsale was with Grace, a source said: "Kate’s daughter, Lily, doesn’t care about the age difference between her mom and Goody and is happy that her mom is happy. Lily does not view Kate as competition or ever feel like Kate would ‘steal’ a guy she might be interested in. Kate would never do that to her daughter, and Kate and Lily also have different taste in guys." But in October 2020, the pair reportedly broke up.
